Each academic year since 2003, Reinhardt has designated a region of the world for students to learn more about through in-depth study and hands-on interaction. This focus is intended to promote understanding of varied cultures, businesses, histories, geographies and faiths and to help internationalize the Reinhardt experience.
The 2013-2014 year is the Year of Germany. Students will delve into the rich history of Germany and how it impacts our business, literature, culture, art, music, and heritage. Events will be scheduled throughout the academic year and include lectures, music, a film-and-discussion series, a travel tour, and many others.
